I am interested in synergy, and how we can utilise our free, bountiful life force energy to support our holistic health. Blending the learning and insights from my life experience with an intuitive understanding of the body, I want to share with you what I have learnt about the nexus of breathwork, human connection, and the ancient practice of tantric massage.
1. The Power of Connection
Imagine an experiment where two individuals maintain eye contact for 60 seconds. A tad uncomfortable, yes but by the end, there is an undeniable bond that forms.
The innate human drive for connection is obvious. Dive deep into the cerebral realm, and you'll find our brains release a delightful cocktail of neurotransmitters when we connect with others sensually and when we orgasm. What does this mean for us?
Boosted Immune System: Connection releases hormones that energise us and support our immunity.
Less Anxiety: Having someone in your corner does wonders for the mind.
Increased Self-Worth: When you choose connection, you feel your unique value in the tapestry of existence.
2. Tantric Massage: Beyond the Surface of the Skin & Muscles
Tantric massage is often misinterpreted in modern discourse, but this age-old spiritual embodiment technique is more than just touching the skin. Tantra isn’t just about sexual pleasure. It’s more about celebrating your body and feeling heightened sensuality. Tantric practice intertwines spirituality, sexuality and a state of mindfulness. It encourages a sensual experience that may be experienced alone or with a partner.
This style of massage involves relaxation, deep breathing, body awareness and intentional erotic touch of the whole body. It's about connection, self-awareness and intimacy which:
Enhances emotional wellbeing because you are connecting with a human.
Connects you to your heart energy and can allow healing.
Reduces stress. Ever heard of the stress hormone cortisol? Tantric massage reduces its levels.
Increases self-awareness of your body’s needs by opening doors to intuition and introspection.
Quick Activity Give yourself a hand massage, touching and kneading. Notice how even this small act can bring relaxation and heightened awareness, and that's just your hand! Imagine a full-body experience.
3. Breathwork: The Bridge
Breath becomes a bridge between the conscious and unconscious when used intentionally for erotic energy movement. Let’s see why:
Boost energy: More oxygen = more energy. Simple maths!
Reduce anxiety: Slow deep breaths calm our nervous system.
Improve mental clarity: Ever felt that 'brain fog'? A few minutes of breathwork can clear that.
Quick Exercise Inhale and on the exhale, exhale right to the bottom of your lungs. Keep exhaling more, totally empty the last bit deep in your lungs, until the in-breath comes naturally. Repeat 4 times. What do you feel in your body when you do this?
Over the years, I have developed a holistic blueprint for integrating authentic connection, tantric massage and breathwork that gives you an expanded experience of pleasure and orgasm. Both women and men and non-binary can benefit from tantric practices, regardless of the gender of the therapist. To experience what these benefits are, you can find information on my website here. Until our next exploration, stay open, curious and connected! :)
